1. Hi,

    I thought it was great. The instructors were awesome and animated as you said. The garden itself is beautiful, i was very impressed. Unfortunately it took my son about a half hour before he got comfortable with the setting. I havent really taken him to any structured events or story time’s, not for the lack of trying, just because he is so active and doesnt care to sit still for very long. He warmed up by snack time and i was able to get him to sit down. Once we got his binoculars and went outside he was good to go. . He followed the instructors and had a great time. He really loved the “farmhouse” and picking the fruits and veggies, which the instructors later hid and the kids went to find them. I think his favorite is the carousel. I did sign him up for the remaining classes, so i am going to give it a shot next week and hope he warms up a bit quicker this time.

    Thanks so much for the review, i would never have know about it otherwise!

      I was worried about the same issue because I brought Oliver with us. He is too young to understand sitting down and paying attention. I will say they were so laid back there that it is the right environment to give it a shot. The places I turn to so my kids can burn energy is My Little Adventures in NJ (30 minutes from No Libs) and Bounce U in Cherry Hill. If you have not done open bounce at Bounce U I highly suggest it for any super active kid!

      1. totally agree about the environment. my son is actually 2 1/2 and i had hoped he would get the idea of sitting down but he clearly has different ideas than i do sometimes… lol . the girls were really great when my son decided to have a meltdown and i stepped outside ..l they made me feel at ease about it. we go to My little adventures pretty often actually, love it there! i am actually planning on booking his 3rd birthday there. I have not been to Bounce u yet.. i tried once but messed up on the times and it was just open to groups that day. i will check it out though.

        I live in Haddon Township, but am originally from Fishtown, which is why i think i am drawn to your site/reviews. I really like how you cover both Philly and NJ as i try to do that as well.
        we are planning on ging to the chicken dance this weekend… perhaps we may run into you this weeknd as i chase down my son… lol 🙂

  2. Sounds great… especially for my very active 2 1/2 year old little guy… i just signed us up for tomorrow and all of May. Thanks so much for the great reivew and posts… you have quickly become my # 1 go to guide for reviews and places to go!

      HI Sharon.

      Hopefully you had a good time like we did and let me know what you think. I am really glad you find the site helpful because it here for parents like you.

  3. I know that you stated that the program is fine to bring along a younger sibling, but for which ages is the program recommended? Glad to hear that it was awesome!

      Hi Becky,

      Good question. I should have called that out. The program is recommended for toddlers. Having been to the program I think it is perfect for 2-3 year olds. I think 4 years old would like it but might be a little bored.
